    I went on ups and looked up my iPhone order... (thanks for the help people of imore)
    Anyways I was thinking about why it's being held back and if I can call ups and ask them to speed up the delivery and I came across this...

    I can't attach pic from iPad. So I'll just copy and paste what they wrote...

    Important information for iPhone Customers
    Apple has required that UPS deliver iPhone shipments to customers on and not before Friday, September 21, 2012. iPhones are scheduled for Friday, September 21 2012.

    Why isn't my package moving? The packages are being staged in key locations and moved on a coordinated schedule for delivery on the shipper's planned release date, Friday, September 21, 2012.
    How do you look up an order on ups.com?

    Funny. My shipping weight is .70 lb for one phone. Hm. lol.

    Mine's in Louisville, KY. I live in Oklahoma. Come on, Friday! That sucks though because my UPS guy doesn't come until usually around after 6pm.

    Apple still shows my order as Processing for Shipment, but with the UPS trick I found out my iPhone left Arkansas early Tuesday morning, and I'm betting it's headed to the UPS by my house. Because of the relatively small town I live in, here's to hoping I get my iPhone 5 a day early like I did last year with the 4S!
    What's the trick ???

    Maybe it's because mine is Sprint?

    Hi Everybody just want to give everyone my timeline hopefully it eases some people.. I placed my order thru verizon wireless telesales on Friday the 14th at about 10:30am for a white iphone5 16gb., no movement with the order at all until I woke up this morning and my card was charged, then at about 8:00am this morning, i got the email with my tracking # with a delivery date by 9/21 at 3pm via fedex. as of 2pm today its sitting in memphis Tn. I am hoping this gives faith to my verizon wireless brothers and sisters who orderd thru them and have seen no movement. Its coming.....

    So I ordered around 3:30 PM last friday and says my phone isn't shipping until the 28th. My question is, am I supposed to receive an email with the iPhone 5 shipping ?

    I ordered at 4:30 EDT on 9/14 via VZW, my status just switched to 10/5. Called VZW and they said ignore that, go by your original delivery date of 9/21 - they're sooo backed up, they've never seen anything like it. Huge amount of ports from ATT because of LTE. FWIW

    I've got the same thing. I believe that's when the order was sent to the warehouse for fulfillment, and usually they would ship it then, but due to release dates, they likely just generated all the shipping information and are now holding until Wednesday night/ Thursday morning to release to the shippers, at which point all our tracking information will actually start working

    Just a guess though.
